Lansingmusic.TV: Recording the Sights and Sounds of Lansing Music
After combining creative energies and a passion for music, three students at Lansing Community College- Sean Bradley, Casey Cavanaugh and Austin Howard- concocted a project called Lansingmusic.TV. Formed in the spring of 2010, Lansingmusic.TV is an online music source which provides viewers with a visual and auditory experience of Lansing talent such as Cheap Girls, Elliot Street Lunatic, Frontier Ruckus, and The Amature. The concept behind the project is to offer a personal view and intimate listen of local talent through filmed interviews and live concerts and also recorded acoustic performances.
Recently, Lansingmusic.TV received a grant via Austin Howard from the city of Lansing which provided them with production equipment to produce monthly content for Lansing's public access. Their debut on the city's broadcast will occur sometime in April.
The rest of the year for Lansingmusic.TV will be spent working with Lansing’s own Elliot Street Lunatic while making a documentary that reveals the processes involved in constructing their upcoming album. Lansingmusic.TV will also be recording the local videogame cover band, Year 200X, as they play an anime convention in Lansing called Shuto Con.
